The children continued their work on their new text (Dracula) with a creative writing lesson.
The children all chose a book. We picked a number – this gave us a page to turn to. We picked another number – this gave us the line. Finally we picked a small number – this selected a word.
The children then wrote a sentence using the selected word; trying to make it appropriate for our current unit of horror stories.
Following this, we used the same sort of process to randomly select two words which the children had to use together in the same sentence. At the end of the lesson, they shared their fantastic sentences!
